Business Spotlight-Chick'n Out
This summer, fried chicken was brought into the mainstream conversation when Popeyes and Chick-fil-A exchanged in a “Twitter beef” about who had the better-fried chicken sandwich. This argument prompted lines out of their doors, viral videos of people reviewing their products, and locations reportedly selling out of their chicken. During this national phenomenon, local Rochester pop-up Chick'n Out has been making waves of their own without the scripted online debates. Adam Bierton, the owner and founder of this successful pop-up, started Chickn’ Out in April of 2019. Showing up in various locations throughout the Rochester area, Chickn’ Out has sold fried chicken at the Blossom Road Pub every Thursday, amassing huge crowds of chicken lovers from across the city.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) —If you’ve driven by Blossom Road Pub on a Thursday evening, you’ve probably seen a line extended out the door, and there’s a tasty reason as to why that is.
Adam Bierton is a Rochester native who attended School of the Arts. He started his career in food industry when he was 17 years old while working at 2 Vine, the former high-end restaurant. From there, he worked his way up.
Now he now runs Chick’n Out — the fried chicken sensation taking Rochester by storm.

This fried chicken pop-up is flying high above the competition
When Adam Bierton moved back home to Rochester, New York after seven years in Brooklyn, he had a hard time adjusting to the food scene. “[In Brooklyn,] I was living next to one of the best fried chicken places,” Bierton said, “I was spoiled.” So when he couldn’t find quality fried chicken west of the Hudson River, he decided to make his own. Enter Chick’n Out. After nine months in business, Chick’n Out partnered with local production company, Captivate Media on a promo video. We stumbled across the drool-worthy video after Bierton slid into our DMs on Instagram (literally). We were so impressed that we wanted to get all the details on the delicious video that started it all.

Bierton felt that it was important to give back to the people taking care of people who have been infected by the coronavirus.
“It was brought to my attention that the cafeterias are all shut down to the workers in the hospitals,” he said. “It’s a comfort food product that we’ve created, and it could be a morale boost for a lot of people who are putting their necks out there and working really hard to keep us safe.”
